What is the most useful size for a cast iron skillet if I can only buy one?

I mostly cook for two, and I want to use the skillet for things like cornbread, frittatas, fruit desserts, etc. I'm thinking that 10" would be right and 12" too large. Is this right?

I use my 8" all the time. Either 8 or 10. I agree that 12 is too large especially for corn bread

This is helpful. That's what I was thinking after reading a lot of cast iron pot recipes.

My 10" pan is one of the best multi-purpose pans I own.
